review by Alex "Costa Rican Fan" Ramirez___
All the darkness that the listener is looking for.
evil Mexican trio has returned with their new production called “Demise
talented Baal Taran is once again in charge of every single instrument.
And I must say the songs have achieved a more accessible structure and a
whole new groove level. They are filled with melodic passages, but at
the same time they maintain the chaotic evil atmosphere that
characterizes this band.
sound is wicked with a feeling of old school black metal. It’s mainly
because of the drumming. And I really enjoyed the drastic change in the
drums. Its no the typical black metal wall of beats. Their sound goes
along in perfect harmony with the songs and they allow the listener to
enjoy the other elements. In this production you can feel all the epic
dark scenarios that a portrayed through the use of Keyboards, piano and
artificial strings. These are an essential part of the obscure and
malign atmosphere that reigns in these 3 songs.
a brief enchanting hypnotic intro we are bombarded with
“Pagan Reborn”. The first thing that comes to my mind is that
those vocals are way more aggressive. They sound like a tornado of
anger. Salai, the vocalist has improved her sound, reaching deep
into her soul and bringing back a piece of hell. And she’s ready to
third track “As The Skies Turn In Black” is a melancholic piece of
art filled with sorrow and desperation. It is actually my favorite song.
last track is “Demise Manifesto” a frenetic song with lots of
energy. This song must be a killer during their shows.
this production Benatnash have consolidate their name in the
international scene. Their musical proposal results stimulating and
delivers all the darkness that the listener is looking for.
second sensorial assault comes from the band Satanochio from Romania.
This band has some very bizarre concepts about the world we live in.
After a dark and sinister intro, the brutally catchy “Everything Dies” starts. With a mixture of mid-tempo psychedelic and epic riffs. These guys blast away everything in their way. The depressive feelings and the dark moods are in every note. Their music it’s like a sociopath on crack creating music.
National John Doe” it’s the name of the second track, and let me
tell you that this band features some insanely heavy riffs. And they are
right to label themselves as evil metal because they create a dense dark
atmosphere. Their sound is aggressive and innovative.
vocals are a mixture of regular growls and insane-asylum screams. Those
screams really help illustrate this psychotic world they have created.
aspect worth-mention about this band is the drum work. They are
aggressive and raw. Don’t get me wrong they are very technical but the
sound is brutal. They remind me a little bit of Brujeria’s early
last song is “Inward The Fairy” . This song is just plain crazy.
Screams of anguish followed by a blast attack.
split CD entitled "Pandemonium" is highly recommendable for
fans of Black Metal and good Metal in general.
